This array of Brussell sprouts initially demonstrated that 40 divided by 9 leaves a remainder of 4. But after some re-grouping, this was the result.

They look so much better demonstrating that 8 times 5 is 40!* *

That sparked an interesting research question for me.

Can 40 of some object be arranged in a non-rectangular way that is also “symmetrically appealing”? What if it was non-symmetric?

Might be something worth looking into. The math of beauty is an interesting subject.
